Remember the TV show Silver Spoons? In the show, Ricky Schroder had tons of arcade machines in his TV mansion. While owning a home arcade machine may have seemed cool, it was usually very expensive and after all, these giant cabinets only played one game.
Luckily Target Stores is looking to change things. Target will start selling full size video Arcade cabinets for less than $500. And unlike a typical arcade cabinet, these machines will play 12 original arcade games.
“The unit stands 62″ tall and has an included, built-in, full color monitor. It comes with additional A/V inputs that allow (almost) any existing home video game system, DVD player, VCR or any other A/V product to be plugged in and viewed on the built-in monitor.” ~ UberReview.com
The games include: Defender, Defender II, Robotron, Joust, Bubbles, Splat, Sinistar, Rampage, Rootbeer Tapper, Wizard of Wor, Timber, and Satan’s Hollow.
